Morocco has implemented a green hydrogen plan for diversifying the national energy source. The Middle East and North Africa region is one of the main countries where fossil fuels are not readily exploited, so it is natural to think of the importation of renewable energies such as hydropower. Morocco is to become the hub of hydrological activities in North Africa by 2030.
Morocco is a center of renewable energies by virtue of its long-standing tradition and utmost level of expertise in the industry. Thus, Morocco is active in deploying new sources of clean energy, green hydrogen, the keystone of the green transition of the energy and industrial sectors.
Morocco is a country known to produce up to 4% of the global demand for green molecules. In this sense, a strategy for developing green hydrogen in Morocco has been put in place, which confirmed that Morocco has significant potential for the development of this sector.
The main purpose of the GreenH2 Cluster is to promote the hydrogen sector in Morocco, particularly through the initiation, support, and coordination of innovative, collaborative projects in the field of green hydrogen.
This innovative project is part of the continued implementation of the High Royal Guidelines to make Morocco a pioneering country in terms of the energy transition. Also, promoting the transfer of best practices through collaborative projects and bringing industrialists and researchers locally and internationally is one of the project’s purposes.
With the irregular fluctuations and the gradual decline of the oil and gas trade, renewable energies are the new eldorado of investment and research and constitute a sustainable alternative. Morocco is gradually carving out a geopolitical player thanks to its solar, wind, and green hydrogen projects.
